Balsam Valley was created in 2014, out of love for the community and pride for our men and women who have served the greatest Country in the world. Founder of Wreaths Across America (wreathsacrossamerica.org), Morrill Worcester, has a great amount of respect and is dedicated to our men and women who fight every day to keep us free. He has vowed that any active duty and/or veterans that comes to the amphitheater will always enjoy our events FREE of charge.
Balsam Valley Amphitheater has always been a dream to the Worcester Family. Living in the rural town of Columbia Falls for the past 50 years, Morrill Worcester has always wanted to expand the area and create a platform for families and friends to gather and enjoy the beauty of Maine with some downhome music.
Nestled between Route 1 and the Sunrise ATV Trails in Columbia Falls. BVA is perfectly placed to enjoy a day with the family on the trails or simply a drive down the coast ending the afternoon with a laid back concert experience. BVA is set within the thousands of acres of balsam land that produces remembrance wreaths for Wreaths Across America, our national non-profit organization that’s mission is to Remember the Fallen; Honor Those Who Serve; and Teaches Our Children the Value of Freedom.
